cumberland house

This Victorian brick house has been 'home away from home' for women attending residential programs at the Centre. Two-and-a-half stories high, with a gable roof and roundhead windows, Cumberland House has been identified as an important heritage structure by the Ontario Heritage Foundation, and is listed in the Canadian Inventory of Historical Buildings. It was designed by Kivas Tully, a 19th century provincial architect, who also designed Victoria Hall, Cobourg (1860), the former Trinity College (1852) and numerous other buildings across Ontario. The house was named in honour of the first superintendent of the Lakeshore Asylum, who resided there during his tenure.

Palmerston House

Palmerston House is a unique transitional housing program where women and mothers with infants have the opportunity to work towards their substance use and related mental health goals.

It is a safe, group environment for women seeking positive change in the lives.

Typically, women spend their days participating in community programs that support their individual needs and goals (e.g. therapeutic, recreational, employment programs, etc.) and come together as a community to share in daily living tasks, such as cooking, and a meal in the early evening. Staff are on site and available to provide support related to substance use, mental health, prenatal, parenting, and life skills
